Metro Aviation, Inc. attracts first-time customer, Duke Life Flight, with their extensive custom aircraft completion options.
After operating two EC135â€™s for several years, Duke Life Flight decides to replace the EC135â€™s with two EC145â€™s completed by Metro Aviation, Inc.
â€œThe larger cabin of the EC145 combined with the state of the art medical interior and avionics suite from Metro Aviation, Inc., will give us additional capabilities and safety features,â€ stated Henry Ward, Administrative Director, Duke Life Flight. Ward added, â€œWith the EC145s, we will be able to accommodate more equipment, larger patients, and expand to three clinicians when needed. This allows us to support a wider variety of missions and deliver our patients the care they require.â€
Completions of the EC145â€™s are underway with delivery of the final completed aircraft scheduled for March 2012.
